Small Group Counseling Descriptions

At the beginning of each school year I send home an informational
letter about the school counseling program here at Myersville.  One of the supports I offer is small group counseling.  This year the letter will go home in Wednesday folders on September 3, 2014.  Please take time to read over the descriptions of the small groups.  If there isn't enough interest for a certain group at a particular grade level, I won't be able to offer it.  Please keep in mind that the groups are designed to meet the needs of students that are actually experiencing a situation or symptoms that could quite have an effect on their academics or social-emotional well-being.  If you are interested in your child participating in a group, please complete the form at the bottom of the letter and return it to me.  I will contact you if your child is being placed in one of the small groups.
This year I'm offering two different "Lunch Bunch" groups, one that focuses on Social Skills and Friendship Relations, and another that focuses on dealing with Stress and Anxiety.  Please indicate on the form which group you are interested in your child participating.  Remember, the groups will be designed to support children who are actually experiencing difficulty in one of those areas.  The groups are not designed to learn more about that particular topic.  Once forms are completed and turned in I'll be in contact with you if your child will be participating in the first round of groups.
